Timer with splits - Sam Levy - 06-08-2007

I Googled timer with splits and found this from the dark side;
http://splits.brokenski.com/ I found the concept of multiple splits useful for timing machine responses, like the timing of elevator operations. It would be useful for any time and motion study. Sam

The TI-89 program found at the link seems to be a good, practical application. I should note that a similar timing capability was provided within our "bright side" long ago -- namely, the HP-41 Time Module, which was incorporated into the HP-41CX. Of course, the output of a similar skiing application program wouldn't look as nice on an HP-41, with its one-line 14-segment LCD.

I think, it won't even look nice on the Ti-89, because at typical skiing temperatures, the display will show just uniform grey ;-)
